Our company and community's most important value is 'Member First', which means that we are committed to protect your privacy and we take great care with the sensitive information that will be collected and will be processed through the BlocDirect platform. This policy will help you understand how we use and protect your data. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Some of the Services require us to know more about you so that we can best meet your needs. When you access these Services, we may ask you to voluntarily provide us certain information that personally identifies (or could be used to personally identify) you ("Personal Information"). Personal Information includes (but is not limited to) the following categories of information: (1) contact data (such as your e-mail address and phone number); (2) demographic data (such as your gender and your zip code), and (3) other information that you voluntarily choose to provide to us, including without limitation unique identifiers such as passwords, and Personal Information in emails or letters that you send to us. (4) information related to the real estate property you own and the interpretation of the data that got processed through the BlocDirect platform to provide insights and recommendations. You may still access and use some of the Services if you choose not to provide us with any Personal Information, but the features of the Services that require your Personal Information will not be accessible to you.
We also may automatically collect certain data when you use the Services, such as: (1) IP address; (2) domain server; (3) type of device(s) used to access the Services; (4) web browser(s) used to access the Services; (5) referring webpage or other source through which you accessed the Services; (6) geolocation information; and (7) other statistics and information associated with the interaction between your browser or device and the Services (collectively "Traffic Data"). Depending on applicable law, some Traffic Data may be Personal Information. We may also collect additional information, which may be Personal Information, as otherwise described to you at the point of collection or pursuant to your consent.
We collect information (including Personal Information and Traffic Data) when you use and interact with the Services, and in some cases from third party sources. Such information includes:
a) When you use the Services’ interactive tools and services, such as subscribing to external sources, subscribing to programs, consulting and updating member information, interacting with BlocDirect representatives or with service providers and partners ;
b) When you voluntarily provide information in free-form text boxes through the Services and through responses to surveys, questionnaires and the like;
c) If you download and install certain applications and software we make available, we may receive and collect information transmitted from your computing device for the purpose of providing you the relevant Services, such as, without limitation, information that lets BlocDirect know when you are logged on and available to receive update or alert notices;
d) If you download our mobile application, we may receive information about your location and mobile device;
e) Through cookies, web beacons, website analytics services and other tracking technology (collectively, "Tracking Tools"), as described below; and
f) When you use the "Contact Us" function on the Site, send us an email or otherwise contact us.
We may use tools outlined below in order to have a better understanding of our users.
Web Beacons: "Web Beacons" (a.k.a. clear GIFs or pixel tags) are tiny graphic image files imbedded in a web page or email that may be used to collect anonymous information about your use of our Services, the websites of selected advertisers and the emails, special promotions or newsletters that we send you. The information collected by Web Beacons allows us to analyze how many people are using the Services, using the selected advertisers' websites or opening our emails, and for what purpose, and also allows us to enhance our interest-based advertising.
Website Analytics: We may use third-party website analytics services in connection with the Services, including, for example, to register mouse clicks, mouse movements, scrolling activity and text that you type into the Site. These website analytics services generally do not collect Personal Information unless you voluntarily provide it and generally do not track your browsing habits across websites which do not use their services. We use the information collected from these services to help make the Services easier to use and as otherwise set forth in Section 5 (Use of Information).
Mobile Device Identifiers: Mobile device identifiers are data stored on your mobile device that may track mobile device’s data and activities occurring on and through it, as well as the applications installed on it. Mobile device identifiers enable collection of Personal Information (such as media access control, address and location) and Traffic Data. As with other Tracking Tools, mobile device identifiers help BlocDirect learn more about our users’ demographics and their internet behaviors.
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a "Do Not Track" (DNT) or similar feature that signals to websites that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website operator elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the website operator may refrain from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many website operators, including BlocDirect, do not take action to respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.
We use your information, including Personal Information, to provide the Services to you and to help improve them, including to:
a) provide you with the products, services and information you request and respond to correspondence that we receive from you;
b) provide, maintain, administer or expand the Services, perform business analyses, or for other internal purposes to support, improve or enhance our business, the Services, and other products and services we offer;
c) send you information about BlocDirect or our products or Services;
e) send emails and other communications that display content that we think will interest you and according to your preferences;
g) use statistical information that we collect in any way permitted by law, including from third parties in connection with their commercial and marketing efforts; and
j) prevent, detect and investigate security breaches and potentially illegal or prohibited activities. We may use information that is neither Personal Information nor PHI (including non-PHI Personal Information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) to better understand who uses BlocDirect and how we can deliver a better wellness and fitness experience (for example, testing different kinds of emails has helped us understand when and how patients prefer to get Wellness Reminders for preventive care), or otherwise at our discretion.
We may disclose certain information that we collect from you:
We may share your Personal Information with real estate agents, buyers and sellers with which you are likely to interact with on the platform. For example, if you complete a subscription form using the Services, we may share your profile history and the data collected and generated around those partners.
We may also share your Personal Information with organizations that collect, aggregate and organize your information so they can make it more easily accessible to real-estate agents, buyers and sellers.
We do not sell email addresses to third parties. We may share your email address with our business partners to enable them to help BlocDirect customize our advertising. They will not be commercially exploited by them and the goal of such an operation would be exclusively to improve the BlocDirect experience.
We may share your Personal Information and Traffic Data with our business partners who perform core operational services (such as hosting, billing, fulfillment, data storage, security, insurance verification, or Website analytics set forth in Section 4.1 (Tracking Tools)) and/or by making certain features available to our users.
We may transfer your information to another company in connection with a merger, sale, acquisition or other change of ownership or control by or of BlocDirect (whether in whole or in part). If one of these events occur, we will make reasonable efforts to notify you before your information becomes subject to different privacy and security policies and practices.
We also may need to disclose your Personal Information or any other information we collect about you if we determine in good faith that such disclosure is needed to: (1) comply with applicable law, regulation, court order or other legal process; (2) protect the rights, property or safety of BlocDirect or another party; (3) enforce the Agreement or other agreements with you; or (4) respond to claims that any posting or other content violates third-party rights. We may disclose information that is neither Personal Information nor PHI (including non-PHI Personal Information that has been de-identified and/or aggregated) at our discretion. We store and process your information on our servers in Canada and abroad. We maintain industry standard backup and archival systems.
Any information that you may reveal in a review posting or online discussion or forum is intentionally open to the public and is not in any way private. We recommend that you carefully consider whether to disclose any Personal Information in any public posting or forum. What you have written may be seen and/or collected by third parties and may be used by others in ways we are unable to control or predict.
If you are a registered user of the Services, you can modify some of the Personal Information you have included in your profile or change your username by logging in and accessing your account. If you wish to close your account, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. BlocDirect will delete your account and the related information at your request as soon as reasonably possible. Please note, however, that BlocDirect reserves the right to retain information from closed accounts, including to comply with law, prevent fraud, resolve disputes, enforce the Agreement and take other actions permitted by law. You must promptly notify us if any of your account data is lost, stolen or used without permission.
The Services are not intended for use by children and children are prohibited from using the Services. BlocDirect does not knowingly collect any information from children, nor are the Services directed to children. By accessing, using and/or submitting information to or through the Services, you represent that you are not younger than age 13. If we learn that we have received any information directly from a child under age 13 without his/her parent’s written consent, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his/her parent or legal guardian) to inform the child that he/she cannot use the Services and subsequently we will delete that information. If you are between age thirteen (13) and the age of majority in your place of residence, you may use the Services only with the consent of or under the supervision of your parent or legal guardian. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a minor child, you may, in compliance with the Agreement, use the Services on behalf of such minor child. Any information that you provide us while using the Services on behalf of your minor child will be treated as Personal Information as otherwise provided herein.
